Both of these are good movies, yet their still flawed someway. No movie is perfect, and I want to express what I DIDN'T like in the films. Transformers It is the best of all Bay's Transformers directed films, but it isn't the revival we all hoped for. I think there should of been a scene to introduce the Decepticons as a collective group, similarly to how the introduced the Autobots. We know nothing about Brawl, Blackout, and Bonecrusher except they can't talk, and are the villians. But all of them are far more memorable than the other Decepticon in the films. But Shatter and Dropkick are still the best villians, they had a clear motive, were fun, and posed a legitimate threat. The movie is too long and could've removed some scenes. Mainly the Sam scenes. They contribute not that much to the plot. The jokes are corny. Michael Bay is not the funniest guy. The humor relies on sex jokes, toilet humor, and characters acting like they have no common sense. But compared to the later films, the humor here is more tolerable and not as cringe worthy. There was alot of pointless bickering, by like the last statement, it's downplayed. Alot of the characters were unlikable. Sam was weird, loud, and unfunny. Mikaela was ok, just over sexualized. I don't remember a scene with Leenox, and he kinda feels there. To quote Ironhide: "The parents are very irritating." I feel the battle of L.A. should of mainly been between the Autobots and Decepticons. It gives the Autobots an unfair advantage, and makes the Decepticons look weak when they can be killed by a couple of explosives. This can also establish the destruction, and how ruthless their war can be. But it is still cool that the humans helped, so it doesn't make them seem like they can't help. The conflict is mainly between the humans and the Transformers, and not the Autobots and Decepticons. It feels like the Decepticons joined the film last second, because that's what the series is about. Bumblebee Travis Knight saved the series, but like every movie, it's not perfect. I have more of nitpicks. I feel the Cybertron scene should of been longer, or to simply include more of them. We never saw much of the planet aside from a few establishing shots. I think it would of been handled better if there were scenes where the Autobots had to recuse Optimus from the Decepticons. Imagine Wheeljack, Ratchet, Brawn, staying behind to help Optimus. Can't think of much criticism for Bumblebee, it was basically perfect.
